Exciting news from Prince Charles Public School. PCPS is participating in an ambitious initiative to walk from Kingston to Whistler, BC in time for the 2010 Olympic games. The aim of the program is to walk the equivalent distance in and around the school as it would take to walk to Whistler. In fact, it will take 6,206,753 steps to walk from Kingston to the Olympic Games. During the school day, students will have an opportunity to walk and record the number of steps they take. If you would like to see how well the students from our area schools are doing in the Walk to Whistler, log on to the Kingston Gets Active website at www.kingstongetsactive.ca
The Frontenac Flyers are starting to soar. October 18 they lost by one to the Napanee Raiders (last year's Finalists). They narrowly missed tieing things up in the last few seconds of the game. More spectators coming out to the games would be a big plus to our Flyers. Come cheer them on Sunday October 25th at the Frontenac Arena. 7 pm. Visiting team Port Hope Panthers
